Most will suggest the Hot Bodies D8/D8T if you are on a budget.

If thats the case than the hyper 7 rtr might be a good choice although its pretty outdated technology wise compared to others on the track.

I just bought a d8t roller with a .21vspec/pipe, aluminum rear hubs aluminium steering plate, as set of cityblocks,a body and multiple spare parts for $250 shipped on eBay.

The chassis had skid plates so its in great condition. Is say the truck has about 4 gallons on it.

The deals are out there. You just have to look and get lucky.

Hot bodies d8/d8t they are like a ford, built tough the a arms a like an inch thick. Also you wont see them breaking like other brands. Match that car with a mach 2 dynamite motor you would be great
